'Need for Speed' is a thrilling stunt fest review
Written by first timer George Gatins, who produced Out of My League, the plot is heavy with questionable logic and monotonous dialogue. Modeled after classic 1960s and 1970s action films, where the cars were key, for Speed often attempts to be a dramatic thriller. But it's best when consciously comical. Trite conventions, like Tobey's brooding demeanor, punctuated by his deep monotone and acute stare, are effective, although overdone at times.
It takes a lot for a film based on a video game to impress a crowd these days, given the dazzling advancements in gaming technology. But for Speed, based on the hit EA Entertainment racing game that's sold 150 million units, could now drive some of that success toward the box office.
Though the pace remains mostly high octane throughout, it drags in the beginning and during the final face off. But overall, this flashy underworld of super charged Clarisonic Mia 2 Charger
machinery and intense action is a blast.
for Speed, a DreamWorks release, is rated PG 13 by the Motion Picture Association of America for of reckless street racing, disturbing crash scenes, nudity and crude language. Running time: 130 minutes. Three stars out of four.
Despite its clichd elements, this adrenaline fueled stunt fest is an unequivocal thrill that deserves to be seen on the big screen. Starring Bad's Aaron Paul, for Speed is fiercely entertaining, loaded with beautiful cars, winding roads and racers in leather coats.
But Tobey isn't always serious. When riding cross country, the eccentric Julia gets him to loosen up. Their banter offers cute comedic relief and sets the stage for romance. Long gone are thoughts of his ex, Anita, played by upcoming Shades of Grey star Dakota Johnson, who tests out her siren potential and achieves it. But it's the sexy, witty and accessible Poots who really shines. Michael Keaton, as Babyliss Curl Secret Simplicity 2663gu Hair Styler Pink
airborne lookout of Tobey's crew.

Since Bad ended last year, Paul has been making an impressive transition to film, starting with the indie drama which debuted at the Sundance Film Festival. In for Speed, he flexes his machismo as a street racer on a vendetta.
Easily the best parts of this ride are the thrilling stunts and races. Stuntman turned director Scott Waugh puts us right in the driver's seat as cars exceed 120 mph and Ghd Jade Straighteners spin through the air. First person camera angles keep the action immediate and personal, just like the video game. Additionally, overhead views offer a sweeping scope of the races as the drivers speed past vineyards in California's Mendocino County, where the De Leon race scenes were filmed.
Compared to the Furious franchise by way of fast cars, harrowing races and a band of brothers connected mostly by loyalty, not blood, for Speed is more like an underdeveloped sibling. It lacks the brutal and brawny gentleman quotient, perhaps the most delicious feature of Still, the boyish good looks of Paul and Cooper are appealing. But could they really save us in a pinch? Vin Diesel's Dom in seems more reliable.
Following a two year prison sentence for a crime he didn't commit, mechanic and race driver Tobey Marshall (Paul) is determined to get revenge on Dino Brewster (Dominic Cooper), the man who framed him. To do so, Tobey drives from New York to California to battle Dino in a high stakes race dubbed the De Leon.
the ridiculously animated mystery man behind the De Leon race, is another highlight.
